How important is the inside of a garage to the overall look of the house? Do you have any suggestions how to affordably make a disorderly garage look really cool?-
I admit, garages are not my strong point. But, everyone (and their husband) loves a nice organized garage! There are so many cool storage solutions these days, but you might be spending quite a bit before you are done. Do you know of anyone remodeling their kitchen? Do they want their old cabinets? Do you know a contractor that does this kind of thing on a regular basis? Old kitchen cabinets put into your garage can be a great fit! I wouldn't hesitate in painting them a cool color of gray, yellow, blue or green. Add some wall shelves, and paint them the same color, making it look like a matching set. Do you have a long blank wall? Paint a cool pattern of circles or something. Nothing too crazy, or too bright, keep it very subtle, but different muted shades of yellow and gray, or the colors of your choice. Look to simple modern art for inspiration. This could be really fun!
